Important Information

Applying under the Early Action (EA) Plan at Curry College comes with benefits! All students who apply and complete their application by the December 1 EA deadline will have their application reviewed by the Admission Committee and will be notified of the outcome no later than December 15. In addition, if a student is admitted under the EA Plan they will receive a $2,000 Early Action Award, worth $8,000 over four years!

Minimum requirements are determined by the Committee. If Curry College is one of a student's top choices, then they are encouraged to apply under the EA Plan.

After review by the Admission Committee, an applicant will be notified by December 15 of one of the following decisions: Admission as an EA candidate qualifying the student for the $2,000 EA Award; Defer to Regular Decision with an offer of admission; Defer to Regular Decision with a request for additional information; or denial.

Admitted students are expected to conduct themselves in a college-ready manner consistent with Curry College's policies and expectations for its students, including those set forth in the Student Handbook. Prior to matriculation, admitted students must report to the Curry College Office of Admission any disciplinary violations or other behavior that is inconsistent with the Code of Conduct. If any of these conditions are not met, the College may withdraw its offer of acceptance and deny admission to the College.

An admitted student must also report to the Curry College Office of Admissions if he or she becomes subject to any discipline process by a school or if his or her status at any school changes for any reason, or if information that was provided to the College in application materials is no longer accurate. The College may take action to withdraw its offer of acceptance and deny admission to (or continued enrollment at) the College, based upon this information (or failure to report these changes as required).

PLEASE NOTE:  At Curry College, we prepare our students to engage in active citizenship. Therefore, the College supports the rights of prospective students to participate in peaceful protests without concern that it will impact their admission to the College.

Curry College is pleased to admit students who have the necessary preparation and background to be successful in and outside the classroom. We look to educate and graduate students prepared to engage in successful careers and active citizenship. No student shall be denied admission on the ground of race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, age, or sex, provided he or she has the necessary preparation and background.

The College uses a holistic approach to identifying applicants who they believe will contribute to Curry's educational community. The Admission Committee selects first-year and transfer students based upon a combination of the following criteria: secondary school record, college transcript, personal essay, standardized test scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test of the College Entrance Examination Board or the ACT of the American College Testing Program, recommendation from the secondary school, and evidence of the candidate's college readiness.  Proof of high school graduation, or GED, is required prior to enrollment.
